    Hi, Ther used to be 2 Tumblr-apps available (Tumblbox & Tumbly) but after the app-catalogue shutdown there not anymore. Are they still working? Is there any chance to get any of the publisched in PREware?

    Here's how:
    1. Look for threads about the shutdown and alternatives to the app catalogue. Some posts will have files attached that are listings of the HP catalogue.
    2. Download these files and search for the apps you want. In the descriptions you should find contact data for the developers.
    3. Contact the developers, requesting that they release the apps. Point them at this thread:
    DEVELOPERS! Post here if your apps will be available after the HP Catalogue closes
    4. You could mention that LuneOS may bring a new audience to their apps & there is nothing to prevent them hosting the apps themselves and charging for them. There may not be much to gain, but nothing to lose either.
    5. Point them to this article about how apps on the web can be linked into Preware:
    https://pivotce.com/2015/04/22/new-p...-our-own-feed/
    6. If they are reluctant to offer the app to the community, host it, update it or field support enquiries, ask if they will open-source the code.
    7. If none of that works, maybe someone here will share the IPK of a free app.

    If I find any contact data, I'll post it.

    Well, I've been in contact with the developer - and it seems as if he's going to open-source the code - and tha Tumblr had made some API-changes that someone would have to adjust to to make it work.

    Nice work! Are you going to post it on the DEVELOPERS! thread?

    I shall add these apps to the zombie app list in the open-source section. Post when you have an address for the repository and I'll add the link to the listing.

    I have a copy of this code (Tumblox2). If anyone wants to try updating it to the new API, let me know. I'm going to check it over and post it on Github presently.
